Selling Houses For $1
He also appeared in Selling Houses For $1, where there was a mini-challenge that was hosted between two cameramen: him and Brady Deluxe. The challenge was to see who can win the house by putting a hundred pennies in the briefcase. Tareq's strategy was to ask for strangers exchange of pennies, while Brady's strategy was to simply ask a cashier the exchange of a dollar to a hundred pennies. Given that Tareq's strategy was much slower, he arrived to the house later, after Brady's victory.
